The first real PDF Viewer for all Palm OS 5.x devices. PalmPDF is a port based on Xpdf (copyright 1996-2005 Glyph & Cog, LLC). Please have a look into the ReadMe_PalmOS.txt file to see the changes between the different versions. Check the ToDo.txt file to see what's planed for the future. During development great importance was attached to stability. If you find an error please don't hesitate to contact me. I will try to remove it in the next release. Nevertheless, if you like PalmPDF, it would be great if you support my work with a donation.
